Age Concern bringing Christmas cheer to isolated seniors

From Nights, 9:30 pm on 15 December 2023

It's just 10 sleeps until Christmas and the staff at Wellington charity Age Concern are taking it upon themselves to bring some festive cheer to isolated seniors in the area. On Tuesday 19, the Age Concern Wellington staff will become Santa's elves for the day, hand-delivering special Christmas gift bags to 50 seniors who might not otherwise get visitors or presents, to show them they are not forgotten. Mark Leishman catches up with Stephen Opie, the CEO of Age Concern Wellington.
